Alpha Minerals Inc. (TSXV:AMW) and JV partner Fission Uranium Corp. are expanding the ongoing summer programme by $2.25M, bringing the total budget to $9.2M. An additional 3,700m will be added to the current program, with the additional drill meters to be used in testing highly prospective targets west of the R00E zone.
As quoted in the press release:
The highest priority areas are between lines 360W and 860W – identified by a recent Radonex soil gas survey that detailed a broader radon coverage from the 2011 field work, ground geophysics and 2012 winter and fall drill programme results.
The programme will move from barge drilling on the lake, to land-based targets, where at least 11 holes will be targeted.
